I’m sad to say that we didn’t do much prepping work this week. Those weeks before Christmas are just hectic, you know what I mean. We had engagements Tuesday and Wednesday, and are taking our daughter to see Christmas lights tomorrow evening after work.
I did, however, manage to spend my budgeted $10 per week on prep and stockpile items 🙂 I stopped in to Big Lots on my lunch break to browse for some Christmas gifts and happened to stumble (luckily!) upon their medicine and first aid isle and…..jackpot!
Y’all, these items are stock up price all the time!
1.) Here’s a rundown of what I got to bulk up our first aid kits:
Aspirin (acetaminophen) = $2.00 for 120 capsules.
Pain Reliever = $1.50 for 100 capsules
Anti-Itch Cream = $2.00
Antifungal cream = $1.50
After Bite = $3.00
TOTAL: $10.00 for all of this! I definitely feel accomplished about this!
2.) I started reading One Second After by William R. Forstchen. It’s about surviving trough an EMP that completely knocks out the electrical grid. I’m going to be honest, the first few pages have been rough to get through. It’s setting up the back story and the plot, but I want to get to the action! I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on my thoughts as I get through it.
3.) I researched some venison stew recipes for the fresh venison we have thanks to my husband’s hunt. I’ve never made one before, so it will be interesting. Look for some photos next week 🙂
4.) I have been working on our Family Emergency Binder slower than I wanted to, but it will be complete this weekend! I’ve given myself a hard deadline.
5.) I also have to finish up some homemade candles for my prepper Christmas gifts. Look for photos for that next week also!
Not too busy of a week, just how I like it!
What did you do to prepare this week? I’d love to hear from you!
